Another so-called "World-est" bridge at Hangzhou Bay

Hangzhou Bay sea-crossing bridge now is connected at construction level. It seems that familiar "world-est" compliments appears over all of Chinese main media.

"36km is the longest sea-crossing bridge in the world","the endurance of the bridge is designed for 100 yrs, the is the first time in the world", "1430tons support weight is the heaviest in the world", and some first time of using newly developed technology, blablabla

Also, they never mention the cost of this bridge, it is probably over 15,000,000,000 rmb (1,500,000,000 euro).
